Brian Howard Clough, OBE (/ˈklʌf/ KLUF; 21 March 1935 – 20 September 2004) was an English footballer and football manager.As a player Clough was a prolific goalscorer with Middlesbrough and Sunderland, scoring 251 league goals from 274 starts. He also won two England caps, both in 1959. Clough retired from playing at the age of 29, after sustaining anterior cruciate ligament damage. He remains one of the Football League's highest goalscorers.In 1965, Clough took the manager's job at Fourth Division Hartlepool United and appointed Peter Taylor as his assistant, the start of an enduring partnership that would bring them success at numerous clubs over the next two decades. In 1967 the duo moved on to Second Division Derby County. In 1968–69, Derby were promoted as Second Division champions. Three years later, Derby were crowned champions of England for the first time in the club's history. In 1973 they reached the semi-finals of the European Cup. However, by this point Clough's relationship with chairman Sam Longson had deteriorated, and he and Taylor resigned.This was followed by an eight-month spell in charge of Third Division Brighton & Hove Albion, before Clough (but not Taylor) returned north in the summer of 1974 to become manager of Leeds United – a surprise appointment given his previous outspoken criticism of the Leeds players and their manager Don Revie. He was sacked after 44 days in the job.Within months Clough had joined Second Division Nottingham Forest, re-uniting with Taylor in 1976. In 1977, Forest were promoted to the top flight and the following season won the league title (the first in the club's history), making Clough one of only four managers to have won the English league with two different clubs. Forest also won two consecutive European Cups (in 1979 and 1980) and two League Cups (1978 and 1979) before Taylor retired in 1982. Clough stayed on as Forest manager for another decade and won two more League Cups (1989 and 1990), but could not emulate his earlier successes. Forest were relegated from the Premier League in 1993, after which Clough retired from football.Charismatic, outspoken and often controversial, Clough is considered one of the great managers of the English game. His achievements with Derby and Forest, two struggling provincial clubs with little prior history of success, are rated amongst the greatest in football history. His teams were also noted for playing attractive football and for their good sportsmanship. Despite applying several times and being a popular choice for the job, he was never appointed England manager, and has been dubbed the "greatest manager England never had".His name is closely associated with that of Peter Taylor, who served as his assistant manager at various clubs in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

1I recommended 30-odd years ago that when a player was getting booked for example and in trouble, not only discipline him but discipline the manager as well. You go and fine Alex Ferguson £50,000 and knowing how tight Alex is with money, I'm telling you nobody would get booked in Manchester United's side 'cos he'd step on it straight away.
2[on Martin O'Neill] Anybody who can do anything in Leicester but make a jumper has got to be a genius.
3That Seaman (David Seaman) is a handsome young man but he spends too much time looking in his mirror rather than at the ball. You can't keep goal with hair like that.
4If a chairman sacks the manager he initially appointed, he should go as well.
5Don't send me flowers when I'm dead. If you like me, send them while I'm alive.
6If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he'd have put grass up there.
7[on Sven-Göran Eriksson] At last England have appointed a manager who speaks English better than the players.
8Players lose you games, not tactics. There's so much crap talked about tactics by people who barely know how to win at dominoes.
9I can't even spell spaghetti never mind talk Italian. How could I tell an Italian to get the ball? He might grab mine.
10[on his disdain for women's football] I like my women to be feminine, not sliding into tackles and covered in mud.
11Rome wasn't built in a day... but I wasn't on that particular job.
12One reason I never became the England manager was because the FA thought I would take over and run the show. They were dead right.
13I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.
